I'm finally going to invest in a decent pellet smoker. Online research shows that a Traeger doesn't have as good a reputation as the ads indicate. The stores selling them all report that they (manufacturer) stand behind their product and have great customer service skills. While not trying to dismiss that, I'd rather have a unit that works GREAT and doesn't NEED customer service department to get involved with it once it's in my back yard. I really like the Yoder YS640 for the extra size and higher temps for searing, but for almost 50% more than a Traeger, I'm not sure it's worth it.
Any positive as well as negatives on what you all bought, how you like it, and what features you wish yours had?
